Step into TRANQUILITY!! Charming home with expansive up-close water view overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca where the big cargo ships and ocean liners sail by! Living room, dining room and kitchen are all open concept, with a massive kitchen island, allowing for all your group to gather together, while the chef prepares a yummy home cooked meal and your resident sommelier pours mom a glass of vino!! After the quietest night's sleep, awake and sit up in bed to see the ocean from the warmth of your cozy comforter, then grab your morning java and sit on the huge deck outside your bedroom door and take in the sea air....ahhhh...breathe!! On a clear day, you can literally see forever...well at least to Mt. Baker ( hundreds of miles away) way over in northeast Washington state whilst the morning sun shines down on your head to melt those cares away! When you're ready for some activity, The North Olympic Peninsula offers a diversity of tourism experiences. The coastal region surrounding Forks, typified by the Park Beaches and the Hoh Rainforest, is exhilarating in its wildness. However, just one hour's drive east in Port Angeles and Sequim, the atmosphere is a bit more citified. Depending on the time of your visit, you might attend one of several festivals - The Juan de Fuca Music Festival and Crab Fest in Port Angeles, as well as, The Irrigation and Lavender Festivals in Sequim). Want to travel to a foreign country where they speak your language, eh? Take one of the four daily summer ferries from Port Angeles across the Strait to Victoria, BC, and its world-class Butchart Gardens or maybe just stroll among the art galleries in Victoria's compact downtown and down a pint at a pub. Nature is still predominant in the east as one can drive up Hurricane Ridge looming over Port Angeles, visit Deer Park and 600 ft deep Lake Crescent, hike the Olympic Discovery Trail or walk Dungeness Spit.
The owners of the Port Angeles Bluff House also own/operate the Manitou Lodge in Forks and don't want you to miss any of the coastal or Port Angeles-centered Peninsula experiences, and, naturally, we'd prefer that you never stay with anyone but us. The 65 miles between west coast Forks and Port Angeles used to pose a bit of a problem, but that problem is now solved. You can now book with us in Forks for the coastal/rainforest experience and at our Port Angeles vacation rental in order to visit Park venues such as Hurricane Ridge, catch a festival, wallow in lavender, or hop over to Victoria or the San Juan Islands.
This lovely residential property is right on the bluff fronting the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Port Angeles and Sequim. This location allows immediate access to Port Angeles and the Victoria Ferry, a variety of Olympic National Park venues and all that lavender in Sequim. Briefly, we're offering a 3 bedroom, 2 full bathroom house with a king bed in the master bedroom, queen in the second bedroom, single bed with trundle in the third bedroom - easily sleeping 6 persons. As one would expect, there's a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and laundry facility. Television and wireless internet service are provided.
Just as it is at our secluded Lodge out by the beaches west of Forks, the chill factor at the Bluff property is huge. Gorgeous views are just everywhere, accompanied by the sound of waves lapping on the shore well below. Eagles are frequent visitors in the firs on the west side of the house. The signature feature of this property is an expansive ocean-facing deck and a weatherproof bluff-front gazebo allowing unobstructed views of Vancouver Island, Mt. Baker, Port Angeles Harbor, shipping, smuggling, search-and-rescue, defection of sailors to the western nation of their choice, and anything else that might be floating or going on out there on the Strait.
